Is the book finished? Well, not really. I still have to work on the cover illustration for one thing. And once turned in a graphic novel still has quite a journey to go through before it hits the shelves of the local libraries and bookstores. About a year’s journey, as a mater of fact. The First Second blog has been featuring a series of posts about what, exactly, goes on in that hidden year between the time a book is turned in and the moment it’s released to the world. If you’re interested in the publishing process it’s a great little “behind the scenes” look at what goes in, and what comes out. Here’s a link:
